Free to Think 2020 analyzes 341 attacks on higher education communities in 58 countries between September 1, 2019 and August 31, 2020. The report draws on data from Scholars At Risk’s Academic Freedom Monitoring Project and identifies trends related to attacks on higher education communities, including violent attacks on campuses in Afghanistan, India, and Yemen; wrongful imprisonments and prosecutions of scholars; restrictions on academic travel, deployed most prominently by authorities in Israel, Turkey, and the United States; pressures on student expression included sustained pressures in Colombia, India, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and South Africa; and legislative and administrative threats to university autonomy, including in Brazil, Ghana, Poland, Romania, Russia, and Turkey.

In 2018, 17.2 million people were internally displaced as a result of natural disasters (IDMC 2019). Just one year later, in 2019, 24.9 million people were displaced due to natural disasters and extreme weather events (IDMC 2020). The catastrophic effects of climate change are no longer isolated emergencies, but have become the new global norm- a reality that is only intensifying each year. Yet the literature regarding climate change has little to no information on the specific nexus between climate displaced and their right to education.

Persons displaced by the effects of climate change face significant vulnerabilities with regard to accessing education: saturated school capacity, destroyed infrastructure, linguistic barriers, difficulties to have past qualifications recognized, discrimination, and more. This is why UNESCO commenced a new initiative: the Impact of Climate Displacement on the Right to Education. This is explored throughout this working paper. 

Las iniciativas que buscan garantizar una educación inclusiva y equitativa para todos han generado peticiones para una mayor involucramiento del sector privado, afirmando que las empresas y las fundaciones pueden jugar un papel importante como socios para alcanzar el Objetivo de Desarrollo Sostenible 4 (ODS4). 

En los últimos años, debido a la falta de financiamiento público y a la necesidad de respuestas urgentes, ha crecido la participación del sector privado en diversos aspectos de la programación educativa para la educación en situaciones de emergencia (EeE). Esta forma de trabajar, sin embargo, puede causar tensiones entre la participación del sector privado y la respuesta humanitaria en materia de educación. Es necesario resolver estas tensiones, lo cual requiere una mayor coordinación, abogacía y atención. Este informe explora algunas de estas tensiones y ofrece recomendaciones para apoyar la priorización de una educación pública segura, equitativa y de calidad para todos los niños, niñas y jóvenes afectados por crisis.

La INEE apoya el derecho que tienen todas las personas jóvenes a la educación y reconoce al Estado como el principal responsable de la escolarización, en línea con declaraciones, marcos e instrumentos legales internacionales que reconocen y protegen el derecho a la educación (véase el recuadro sobre los instrumentos legales que protegen el derecho a la educación).

Efforts to secure inclusive and equitable education for all have prompted calls for greater engagement by the private sector, asserting that businesses and foundations can play significant roles as partners in achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4).

In recent years, given shortfalls in public financing and the need for urgent responses, private actors have increasingly become involved in various aspects of educational programming for education in emergencies (EiE). The arrangement, however, can produce tensions between private engagement and humanitarian response in education, which needs to be addressed and in turn requires extra coordination, advocacy and attention. This brief explores some of these tensions and makes recommendations to support the prioritization of safe, equitable, and quality public education for all children and young people affected by crises.

INEE supports every young person’s right to education and recognizes the State as the primary duty-bearer of schooling, in alignment with international declarations, frameworks, and legal instruments that assert and protect the right to education

دفعت الجهود الرامية إلى تأمين التعليم الشامل والعادل للجميع إلى دعوات للمزيد من المشاركة من جانب القطاع الخاص ، والتأكيد على أن الشركات والمؤسسات قادرة على لعب أدوار كبيرة كشركاء في تحقيق الهدف الرابع من أهداف التنمية المستدامة.

في السنوات الأخيرة، وفي ضوء النقص في التمويل العام والحاجة إلى استجابات عاجلة، أصبحت الجهات الفاعلة الخاصة تشارك بشكل متزايد في مختلف جوانب البرمجة التعليمية من أجل التعليم في حالات الطوارئ. غير أن هذه التدابير يمكن أن تؤدي إلى حدوث توتر بين مشاركة القطاع الخاص والاستجابة الإنسانية في مجال التعليم، الأمر الذي يحتاج إلى معالجة ويتطلب بدوره مزيدًا من التنسيق والمناصرة والاهتمام. ويستكشف هذا الموجز بعض هذا التوتر ويقدم توصيات لدعم الأولوية للتعليم العام الآمن والمنصف والجيد لجميع الأطفال والشباب المتضررين من الأزمات.


تدعم الشبكة المشتركة لوكالات التعليم في حالات الطوارئ حق كل شاب في التعليم وتعترف بأن الدولة هي الجهة الرئيسية المسؤولة عن التعليم، تمشياً مع الإعلانات والأطر والمواثيق القانونية الدولية التي تؤكد الحق في التعليم وتحميه (انظر الإطار حول المواثيق القانونية التي تحمي الحق في التعليم).

In this general comment, the Committee emphasizes that the rights of every child must be respected, protected and fulfilled in the digital environment. This document is the result of a two-year consultation with States parties, inter-governmental organizations, civil society, national human rights institutions and children. Over 700 children and young people, aged between nine and 22 years old in 27 countries, were asked how digital technology impacts their rights, and what actions they want to see taken to protect them.
